rehearsed candidate ever before a presidential debate. >> what is president obama's biggest strength, congressman? >> he's got that big smile. but other than that, look, he's a very charming person. there's a reason why he became the president of the united states. but it's going to be a good debate. >> what are you worried about, bill, the most as far as president obama is concerned? >> well, as you know, i worked for president obama for a long time. and i love the guy. but he does have this reputation for sometimes speaking in paragraphs and not in sound bites. in this kind of venue, sound bites are the thing that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no.

happened last night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we had was in 1960. here are all of the other years that we have since have televised presidential debates. every four years now we have these debates on tv. the only years, though, so these are all the years, right, right? the only years, though, in which you had an incumbent president running against a challenger in all of the years we've had presidential debates on tv are these years. so in terms of understanding the historical context of what happened last night when mitt romney beat president obama in this first debate, this is the universe of like things to compare it to. this is how to understand it in terms of american political history. it's only these years right here. that's it. now, by definition, you never have an incumbent president in this situation more than once. presidents can only serve two terms so there's only one opportunity when they carry into that debate, when they're running for re-election, they carry into that debate the g

for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget

towards obama in the way that everyone things unless we reset the presidential election, it is quite clear the president is headed towards creating an environment where he has a significant advantage. >> mitt romney will be so exceptionable tomorrow there will be a seismic shift. >> tune in. talk about next week in class. >> you engage in more localized races, congressional and senate, a bit about how you choose rarities said to have a broader >> that is a big question. we are clearly focused on the presidential election. the goal is to defeat president obama and elect a new president of heavily invested in the senate and house races. we are focused on all of them. the senate races is where you will see more of the advertising earlier on, because the bigger the office, the more people pay attention earlier. we will be engaged in a number of house races probably later on as we get closer. >> that is the other thing, a crossroads places outside role in the senate races. do not think that these are not inclinentwined. even if there was parity, the republican side, a crossroads and others, our

. the problem for mr. obama is that's debatable. it's not a fact unless you are spike lee. the presidential debate this evening should be a passionate display. he has to call out barack obama on the muddled economy. the governor has to do that in. when that happens, the president will lash back pinning romney as ruthless rich guy who wants to exploit working americans. i can't imagine romney is going to take that without a stinging come back. the debate has a potential of being rowdy. i want to see these guys go after each other. they are so dramatically apart in belief systems. every american should understand the huge gap. the pressure is on mitt romney tonight but he has plenty of verbal ammunition. in less than an hour, we will see if he uses it and that's the memo. in a moment, carl rove, dick morris, kirsten powers, leslie marshall and dennis miller will all weigh in on the debate this evening. the factor will be back after these messages.

the morning after the first presidential debate and the big question is where was president obama? too bad he didn't show up last night. mitt romney sure showed up. he was aggressive, he was assertive. he was animated. president obama was passive. he was eloof. sometimes it looked like he was asleep. the difference is, of course, that president obama told the truth. mitt romney told nothing but lies. hey, we'll continue to analyze the debate from every direction and take your calls at 1-866-55-press. but first here she is. lisa ferguson standing by with today's current news update. hi lisa, good morning. >> good morning everyone. let's talk about the romney lies as promised, here is fact checking from last night's presidential debate. starting out, romney's claim that he would not raise any taxes on middle class americans. the first problem with this is that it is just the latest in a series of flip-flops. first he promises tax cuts across the board then he says don't expect any big tax breaks because he's also get

aggressive but i don't believe he was more presidential. i believe the president obama handled himself with that dignified reserve is his hallmark. anybody that expected him to come out in an aggressive in your face way has not been watching the president for these last four years. i thought the president was particularly strong tonight, especially in contrasting the two economic views of these candidates. president obama's view of how we fix our economy. much more in line with main strewn americans believe, the middle class believes. the things that president clinton used, balanced approach. opportunity and, i thought that governor romney really didn't do anything to dissuade the general public from the view that he would like to go back to the days of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and hope that this time, instead of growing deficits, and growing unemployment, that it grows jobs. so governor romney really needed a game changer tonight. i hate to say this but i find myself agreeing with chris christie. governor romney really needed to turn the world upside down. he really need ad g

-span viewers what they thought of the first presidential debate. >> i thought obama could have grilled mitt romney on a lot of the things. i love the point he made -- the 47% comment. i think he could grow more. i do think mitt romney did a very good job of bringing forward his arguments. i do feel he was a bit rude in interrupting president obama and the moderator both. >> and i think that even as a democrat myself, mitt romney had some good points. i think that obama could have been a lot more aggressive in this debate. you do not spend the first 20 seconds of the first presidential debate wishing to write a happy anniversary. >> romney did what he was supposed to do. things are not looking good for him. it was natural for him to go back there and be very defensive, as he was to 92 it was incredible to see mitt romney --. >> -- it was incredible, to see mitt romney, who has been dehumanized and beat up, to become human for so many people. you see a compassionate and well composed and absolutely presidential timbre. he is not only well-versed, but he can hold as down anywhere. -- his own a

away from thes first presidential debate in denver where mitt romney and barack obama will be trying to reach a shrinking pool of undecided voters. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla. the challenges for both. everyone trying to lower expectations but the fact is, that both of these -- both of these debaters are experienced, they both had primary debates but there is a challenge first for mitt romney, he's never gone head-to-head against barack obama and for the president, he has not debated in a while. he didn't have any -- of course didn't have any primary challenges this year. >> right. andrea, i always think it's hilarious, last night in las vegas barack obama said i'm an okay debater. it's like when lou holtz was the coach of notre dame and playing east/west texas state, i don't know, they're pretty strong this year. you have to put it in some context. both of these people as you point out have risen to a point where they are the nominees for president for the parties. neither are bad debaters. they are both able and capable. you're right. look, barack obama hasn't debat

response showed a tremendous lack of presidential character. >> michelle is a former obama administration top aide, currently advising obama's re-election campaign on national security issues, served three years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think

for cannot be met with just sitting down on a presidential level as barack obama had said he would be willing to do. that is beyond bad judgment. that is dangerous. no, diplomacy is very important. first and foremost, that is what we would engage in. but diplomacy is hard work by serious people. it's lining out clear objectives and having your friends and your allies ready to back you up there and have sanctions lined up also before any kind of presidential summit would take place. >> senator? >> can i clarify this? that's just simply not true about barack obama. he did not say sit down with ahmadinejad. >> the fact of the matter is, it surprises me that senator mccain doesn't realize that ahmadinejad does not control the security apparatus in iran. the theocracy controls the security apparatus, number one. number two, five secretaries of state did say we should talk with and sit down. now, john and governor palin now say they're all for -- they have a passion, i think the phrase was, a passion for diplomacy and that we have to bring our friends and allies along. our friends and allies have b

for the presidential election were cast before election day. so you have this really interesting thing of you have, you know, barack obama and then john mccain coming, barn storming through the state where a lot of votes were already cast. we're expecting a similar picture in 2012. obviously florida is the biggest link state in america, 29 electoral votes, already republicans and democrats are organizing lawyers in every one of florida's 67 counties, get ready to challenge ballots. hearing stories of potential voter registration fraud. so it's florida, it's every year, every election there's lots of questions, and this is another year. i'm sorry you're going to have to deal with us, put up with us through november 6th. >> florida, florida, florida. henry, critics of early voting say people are already voting, the presidential debates haven't even happened yet. and something could well happen in the presidential debates to change people's minds. and that's maybe why we shouldn't have early voting because there's just not enough time. >> well, sure. you hear that argument. and there are a lot of voters w

, president obama is starting to get his edge, we're back in the place now, a surprising place to be this year. and the next couple of debates, the vice presidential debate next week, they will take on added significance, i really didn't think we would be here at this point in the campaign. >> and i'm going to say, just in bottom line, i said it just got really interesting this week. there was sort of a trend, and i think there were a lot of people out there putting predictions prior to this past week, and now look where we are. but eleanor, you said mitt romney was skilled in mixing facts with falsehoods, and did little last night to create a bond of trust with the people. his glib, even slick performance may score with the debate coaches, but the american people may not be similarly wowed. do you still feel that today? >> yes, the fact checkers are still all over mitt romneys, reversing some of his ideas, and his key proposals. so i think he is paying a price for not having formed a bond of trust with the american people earlier in this campaign. the fact that he -- convention was a missed o
